Front Door Wreath

We've never had a Christmas wreath....or any wreathe on our front door for that matter.

But this year is different.

We I decided that we HAD to have one and that I HAD to make one.

So I did.

Since my theme this year is twine and red and white stripes....I wanted to use leftover fabric from Boston's birthday party.  I have a ton left over and since I love to recycle I knew I'd have plenty to work with.

Last year I got a plain brown twig wreathe at an after Christmas sale.  I thought of painting it white but decided I'd keep it it's natural color.  The main things I wanted on our wreathe were: a letter C, a saying, and fabric rosettes.

I got this plaque (spray painted red) from hobby lobby and I already had the letters (painted white) from making Boston's picture frame. 
This letter (spray painted white) also came from Hobby Lobby for a buck 99.
In action making my rosettes.  I'm inlovewithrosettes!  I love everything rosettes.  Especially headpieces.  I just ordered some mega cute ones from one of my favorite websites, Etsy.  You may see me wearing more on my noggin', soon.  I can't wait.  I may even make some for my sweaters or blouses.  Who knows.  But one thing we do know is that YOU will know what I decide to do.  :)
All finished.
The snowflakes are ornaments, also from Hobby Lobby.  I'm also using them for something else (you'll see soon).  :-)
I'm really loving to look, colors and simple style.  There's just enough things on it to make it simple but cute.  The rosettes are so easy to make, too.  I got a good tutorial off Pinterest.  :)  

Happy Holidays, 
from The Cooks!
